Alliance 4 Development is a co-development program for film projects from Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, aimed at future-proofing their market potential and fostering long-term creative and business ties between the five targeted countries.
During a three-day event (4-6 August, 2023), delegates of the 11 selected projects (two from Austria, France, Germany, and Italy, plus three from Switzerland) are given the opportunity to receive feedback from international experts on their presentations, to partake in one-on-one meetings with potential partners, and attend panels and networking events.
The eleven selected projects will also compete for several awards: the Alphapanda Market Breakout Award, consisting in consultancy services in the value of 3'000 €; a script consultancy residency at DreamAgo, offered by the Valais Film Commission, worth 5’000 CHF; the MIDPOINT Consulting Award for an in-depth online script consultancy with one of the MIDPOINT Institute experts and the Ticino Film Commission Residence Award consists of a 2-day location scout (worth 4’000 CHF) and Letter of Intent (LOI) for financial support for the production company (worth up to 12’000 CHF), if all or part of the film will be shot in Ticino (Switzerland).
Alliance 4 Development is possible thanks to partnerships with CNC (Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée), France; FFA (Filmförderungsanstalt), Germany; DGCA-MiC (Direzione Generale Cinema e Audiovisivo del Ministero della Cultura), Italy; OFI (Österreichisches Filminstitut), Austria; the Federal Office of Culture (FOC) / MEDIA Desk Suisse, Switzerland. A4D is also made possible by contributions from Eurimages, which promotes and sponsors one of the initiative's networking events, and from the European Producers Club, which offers consultancy on the various issues covered.
